My sister visits!

I've been slacking with the blog lately, but not by choice. My laptop's battery and charger is toast so I'm weighing out the options of replacements or new laptop all together? (I'm dreaming of you Mac)

Anywho, this past weekend my sister came up for a visit. It was so nice to spend some quality girl time!
We went thrift shopping, complained about the inflation of Value Village's prices, worked on crafts, learned my sister is a much better wii bowler than myself... now to convince her to move back to Toronto.

We went to the Big Apple!

Okay so I'm kind of a dork for ridiculous tourist attractions, many times we drove by this place on road-trips, however, we never took the time to stop.  After a crazy couple of weeks of working and holiday functions we decided to take a day off and go for a drive to the cheesiest place we could think of. 
The Big apple is 35 feet high, the attraction has a mini put (sadly closed) an observation deck (also closed) and a gift shop (you betcha it was closed!) Okay, next time we will go in the summer. We did purchase some apple bread..yum!

We took the long way home and did some major small town thrift store shopping (they have the best stuff),
 it was great day. 
If you know of any cheesy tourist attractions let me know!
